The word giardinetto means ‘little garden’ in Italian and is used to describe jewels such as this with vases or baskets containing flowers. Rings in this style were particularly popular during the Georgian period whilst brooches and pendants dominated the Edwardian period’s interpretation of this design. This is a wonderful example of its type, delicate and elegant with a lightness of touch and naturalistic feel.
